Accident Incident Report Form

Updated January 08, 2024

An accident incident report is a form that asks for details about an accident that occurs in a vehicle, school, or workplace in order to properly document what took place. Details include the location and time of the accident and information about the individuals involved. The report is used to assist in any police investigation or legal action that might arise.

Accident Report vs. Incident Report

Every accident is an incident, but not every incident is an accident. To determine whether an event is an accident or an incident, gauge the severity of its impact on the individuals involved.

Accident – In legal parlance, the word “accident” refers to an unexpected event that causes damage, injury, or harm.

Incident – An “incident” is an unexpected event that does not necessarily cause damage, injury, or harm.
